Whispering Pines B&B is one of 80 attractions included in the 2013 Nebraska Passport. The program, created by the Nebraska Tourism Commission, encourages travelers to explore Nebraska. Participants collect stamps from participating attractions and then redeem them for prizes.
Attractions selected for the 2013 program are organized into 10 special-interest tours: Hit the Hot Spots, Meet the Locals, Picture the Scene, Play Outside, Savor the Flavor, Seeing Is Believing, Sleep Tight, Tap Into It, Turn the Page and Wrangle the West. Whispering Pines B&B is part of Sleep Tight tour.
Travelers have until Sept. 30 to visit attractions and redeem their stamps for prizes. For each completed tour, participants receive a Nebraska Passport T-shirt. In addition, travelers can win 20 $1 Nebraska Lottery Scratch coupons (for 20 stamps) and a digital camera (for 40 stamps).
Participants also have the chance to be entered into a grand-prize drawing (held in October) for an Apple® iPad® mini valued at approximately $600. An additional drawing for 300 $1 Nebraska Lottery Scratch tickets will be held for all participants 19 years of age or older who turn in passports with at least one stamp.
